Quote of the day:

"Only have enough of little virtues and common fidelities, and you need not mourn because you are neither a hero or a saint."

~  Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887), American Presbyterian Minister


Over the years, I have slowly come to accept that there are people who just plain don’t like me, for one reason or another.  Yes, I know, one should not worry about what others think about you because they probably aren’t thinking about you at all.  But it is only fairly recently that I stopped beating myself up over it.  I have spent countless hours trying to figure out what I could’ve said differently in various social situations, wondering if I could’ve dressed different to fit in better, or just worried that my aura was projecting some sort of “hate me” vibe.  I would try and rehearse interactions, but then I would get all contrary and act like a rectal cavity, trying to be as bad as I was being treated.  It took a long time to understand that it was all about meeting their expectations if you wanted to belong while I always felt that meeting MY expectations of me was more important.  It took an even longer time to understand that didn’t mean I was wrong or misguided, just me. 



Thank you, my friends
